Baby Soldiers


Mother’s give birth

To newborn soldiers

Soon trained in combat

They never falter

Babies born with a special creed

Society planted this warriors seed


Only men joined the battlefront

Children remained at the home front

But times have changed

For girls and boys

They now face strategic training

Leaving behind their memories

Of playing innocently with toys


Mother’s are breeding soldiers

Men of age get younger

As the front line gets longer

A country’s enemy grows stronger

Colder and bolder


Those babies once were swaddled

Now trained for battle

A rifle replaces the rattle

Tanks replace a crib

Mother’s tears of joy

Now run from eyes that weep

Mother’s give birth

To new born soldiers

The price of freedom isn’t cheap

I write because it is who I am, it’s part of my life. I can’t picture not ever writing again. My ideas, my inspiration comes from life itself, like love and heartache, society and law, religion and passion. I’m a writer by heart, my muse fueled soul wakes up each day with poetry screaming for release. I write for myself and for my fans, my audience whom I cherish oh so much.
